The judge listed the 10 factors a court must consider when determining a motion to dismiss in the interest of justice under CPL ยง170.40, including "the history, character and condition of the defendant" and "any other relevant fact indicating that a judgment of conviction would have no useful purpose."
I had heretofore never heard of such a list of factors. Does every state have such a listing; and what is the general title of such listing?
Gun Control: The premise that a woman found in an alley, raped and strangled with her own pantyhose, is morally superior to allowing that same woman to defend her life with a firearm.
